A little gem in old Kota area

More than just a museum on banking, it also provides the historical context of pre- and post-colonial Indonesia. I learned a lot about the economy, both past and current. It is also, per my hosts, one of the nicest, most comfortable and visitor friendly museums in Jakarta.

This museum is clean, free of charge with helpful staff. You can find many historical information of Indonesia. It is quite well-maintained, which is surprise for a museum here. It is worth a visit one in a life time.

From here you can know how Jakarata developing followed by evolution of money. So if you come here, you might know history about money and how Jakarta city developing.

it's free but it is beyond my expectation! very well- maintained, lots of great explanations and medias... I think they should charge some fees because it's too good. do not miss it! they have lockers, very near to the bus/ train stations. even a cafe is located at the back.
